I don't wear this dress nearly enough. It's one of my favorite colors in the whole world, and I watched it for months on the ModCloth site before it finally dropped down to a price I could afford. So I'm not sure why it sits waiting in my closet for so long between outings. I had planned on wearing this dress when Audra McDonald came to sing with the orchestra I work for (I thought this ensemble would be an appropriate nod to Billie Holiday). I took these photos and had some downtime before work, so I put on sweatpants in between. I went to put the dress back on... and the zipper suddenly wouldn't zip, no matter how hard I tried! So it's going to be another long while before I wear this dress again -- this time, because I'll have to get the zipper replaced! I wore a different dress to work, and though I stood in the very back row, hers is a performance I won't soon forget. What an incredible artist and lady.
I hope you all had a nice Valentine's weekend! I had shows on Saturday and Sunday, and held my own Friends marathon and ate my feelings in my spare time. ;) It totally wasn't as pathetic as I make it out to be. Honestly, I would much rather be single on holidays like this than be with someone who is wrong for me or in a relationship that doesn't add to my happiness! Being alone has made me value a lot of things about myself, and I'm very purposefully not dating for the foreseeable future. I need to be happy on my own before I get into anything with anyone again, and I'm actually really grateful for this "me" time.
